Currently those people at risk of serious illness from coronavirus in the priority groups 1 – 4 are being contacted by the NHS in a range of ways to book an appointment.
You may already have been contacted by your own practice or somebody working on their behalf to offer you an appointment at one of the local designated primary care centres. They are currently working through the eligible cohorts and you will be contacted when it is your turn.
However, local people may also receive a letter from the National NHS Vaccination Booking Service offering them to book their vaccine with the national system at a nearby vaccination centre or community pharmacy. If you have not already got an appointment, you can book in this way if you wish to.
If you receive a letter from the NHS to book with the national system and you have already had your vaccination, or you already have an appointment booked at a local primary care centre, then please ignore the letter. Please ensure that you keep any appointments that you have already booked.
Please do not contact your GP to ask about this. You will be contacted when it’s your turn.
